The World Tour
July 7, 2023 by M.B. Edwards
Alt rock/pop punker Yungblud is currently on his World Tour promoting his self-titled third studio album, and he will remain busy through August.
Prior to becoming an international sensation, Yungblud – born Dominic Richard Harrison – was an actor and held a recurring role on the British soap opera “Emmerdale,” plus a recurring role as Oz on “The Lodge,” a Disney Channel musical drama/mystery.
Yungblud’s first single, “King Charles,” came out in 2017 and was later showcased on his self-titled EP alongside “I Love You, Will You Marry Me” and “Tin Pan Boy.”
His first studio album, “21st Century Liability,” included songs from the EP as well as hits “California,” “21st Century Liability,” and “Kill Somebody.” In 2019, he released “Weird” which featured the single “Strawberry Lipstick.”
Another landmark moment was the release of “I Think I’m Okay.” He collaborated with Machine Gunn Kelly and Travis Barker for this one, and his supporters dug it: 27 million YouTube views can’t be wrong, right?
Not one to sit around, he also created a comic book, “Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club,” and has had his music featured in various shows and films, plus he created a short film for his work on the song “Mars.”
In March 2022 the world got a lot smaller for Yungblud as “The Funeral” blew up. Interesting how an international hit changes perspectives.
Radio stations like KROQ and 91X in SoCal jumped all over this one. With a wink and a smile, life took off in a new trajectory for Yungblud.
